Affordable Horse Insurance
Currently we are in very trying economical times in our country.
by Conni Peters, Roger Peters Livestock Insurer, inc.
Each of us is feeling the “crunch” of this situation- cutting back on some of our expenses is one way of
easing our burden. However, insurance is never a wise place to cut back. Whether it is on your health
insurance, car insurance, homeowners insurance or even you’re horse insurance. A total loss in any of
these areas could be not only financially devastating but emotionally devastating as well.
The vast majority of my clients are hard working-family oriented- middle class people. In order to
own their beloved horse they have borrowed money from the bank to purchase it, or maybe the horse
is the love of their life and their link to sanity in an insane world. Their horse is as much a part of their
family as any human. The #1 cause of death to insured horses is colic. This condition knows no
boundaries. Not age, not extra special care or even prayer will spare a horse from this unpredictable and many times deadly condition.
You may not be able to protect yourself from the emotional pain of a loss- but you certainly can
protect yourself from the financial devastation it could certainly cause you. Leaving you, “paying for a
dead horse” and unable to replace it because of the monetary situation a loss would cause.
Imagine walking out into the barn one morning to feed and finding your horse unable to stand up. He
is colicking-- or worse yet-- he is already gone. Two phone calls and of course a few prayers will
help you get thru this. First you call your vet so, hopefully, he can save your horse with treatment or
surgery. The second call is to your insurance company or agent to report the situation. Now your horse and your financial situation both have a fighting chance.
the cost of protecting your investment could have been as little as $450.00 per year. This would have
allowed you a return of $5,000 if your horse died as well as an allotted amount of $7,500 to do the
colic surgery. Do you think if you could have seen into the future that you would not have found a way
to pay that $450.00??? Of course you would have. That is why they call hindsight 20/20. It all becomes so clear when you are in a position like this.
So please, the next time you think that you ca not afford $1.25 a day to protect your friend,
companion and four legged family member… think again! Simply pick up the phone-make a free call
to our office- 1-800-228-8664 and ask for Conni or Stacy. We have loved insuring America’s
horses for over 37 years and we will certainly know how to help you. As horse owners, we know all about loving our animals!
